Implementing Healthcare Microgrids at new/existing Healthcare Facilities

Jamie A. Schnick PE/LEED AP
Senior Electrical Engineer, FDD - HCAI

The need for resilient Healthcare facilities continues to be a hot topic. While Distributed Energy Resources (DER’s) have frequently been implemented at healthcare facilities (Photo Voltaics, Fuel Cells, Battery Storage Units), the concept of a healthcare microgrid with: DER’s, common bus and controllers is still relatively new. Challenges and benefits of this approach will be presented along with current development of projects that incorporate healthcare microgrids. The concept of Healthcare Microgrids as Emergency Energy Source will be discussed as well.

1: What is a Healthcare Microgrid?
2: What codes pertain to Healthcare Microgrids?
3: How are codes evolving to facilitate incorporation of Healthcare Microgrids?
4: Can Healthcare Microgrids serve as a Healthcare facilitie's Emergency Power Source (EPS)?
